Taking the senior class doesn't guarantee a spot on spring's CCAD runway. A jury of fashion insiders judge the looks months before the show, and their critiques are considered in the decision of who makes it to the stage. The process is rigorous. The standards are high.

Here is a list of the 25 students showing on Friday, May 13, the master designers they used as their collections' muses and what they used from those designers as inspiration.

Mea Adams - Betsey Johnson - Lavish displays of whimsy
